Paris' frenetic spring-summer couture week wrapped up Thursday with displays mixing one of Jennifer Lopez's favorite red-carpet designers Zuhair Murad with other promising up-and-coming names.
"I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time," Lady Gaga once said. And the fashion-inspired singer reigned supreme at the opening of Paris' luxuriant haute couture shows. Monday marked the first full day of the spring-summer 2014 displays in Paris, including collections from Christian Dior Couture, Giambattista Valli and Schiaparelli.
Shoe hats, lobster dresses, and spiraling goggle glasses could easily be part of a closet inventory belonging to Lady Gaga.
Like bookends, Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada sit at opposite ends of a long, elegant table for their chat. There are crystal wineglasses and an ornate chandelier. They cover fashion, of course, but get into broader topics of politics and exotic places, feminism and popular culture.
Miuccia Prada never met her designing compatriot Elsa Schiaparelli in life but the two are being united in an exhibit on the sidelines of Milan Fashion Week.
Schiaparelli says the top of an outfit is the most important because in her day (the 1930s-'40s), when Cafe Society was all the rage, women were seen only from the waist up, sitting at a restaurant table.
"Curiously enough, in spite of (my) apparent craziness and love of fun and gags, (my) greatest fans were the ultra-smart and conservative women, wives of diplomats and bankers, millionaires and artists, who liked severe suits and plain black dresses," Schiaparelli was quoted from her autobiography "Shocking Life."
